"Choices .XML" to be Shared with Whole Society (Prefectural Code / Enterprise ID)

Monday, June 9, 2014
I have been introducing the way to use 'Select type Input form' for inputting business data.

First of all, 'Business Data' is roughly divided into (A) the data to be input by referencing the master information, copied and Pasted, and (B) the data to be written freely. Of course, there is no clear boundary between them, but if it is an input form that is close to (A), you should consider using 'Choices'.

That is, input forms (Data item) for 'Account Name', etc., are likely to be judged 'to be managed in Master'.

However, is it good enough with 'Master management only in-house", in this Cloud computing era? Needless to say, it is necessary to companies going to actively adopt "standard classification code" in order to increase the operational efficiency of society as a whole.

Here, as the first step to realize these, we are going to study on a case that adding office code of their own (a ~ f) to the Prefectural Code, which is defined by ISO (International Organization for Standardization). (It won't be an pure ISO code, but will be good enough for data analysis in the future. Coexistence of "operational efficiency of day-to-day"and "data utilization in the future" is quite difficult...)

This Business Process definition (Workflow definition) is test flow to test the Choice Form. But, it has a function to generate the XML choices in passing. Choices XML will be generated as it proceeds such as the following. I really want you to import this and experience it.

By the way, incidentally,,, "Master management in society as a whole" is about to be realized little by little.

Speaking of "Corporate ID" In the past Japan, there have been "Security Code" of the listed companies, "Common Supplier Code" by industry associations, and "Company Code" by credit research company. Speaking globally, "DUNS" (Data Universal Numbering System) which is managed by Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) is famous one. However, these data did not cover all of the companies completely.

But "Master management of society as a whole" is so to speak infrastructural project. All companies are registered, all companies can use it for free. A Master data like that is desired.

And, "the Social Security and Tax Number System" has been established as law in 2013 in Japan. It is defined that an "enterprise identification number" to be applied to the corporation of all companies, etc. (The actual imparting will be started from October 2015). In the not too distant future, governments themselves would publish the "Corporate Code XML".
